Please Vote! Rodial Beautiful Awards

I was amazed and very flattered to discover I had been nominated for a Rodial Beautiful Award, under the category ‘Best Beauty Blog’. I have some serious competition – could I be up against 5 better girls?!
The awards take place on 19th March, which I’m very much looking forward to. All of the other categories have a panel of judges to decide the winner, but the blog vote is decided purely by votes.

Now, I realise I don’t have a hope in hell of winning against those girls – I feel honoured to even be nominated – but I’d really like my nomination to seem worthwhile – so please, I’ll love you forever if you’d take a minute to vote by clicking here.

Thank you – I shall keep you updated from the awards via Twitter and or Instagram!

Butterfly Award

The lovely Strawberry Blonde nominated me for a Butterfly Award – thank you very much Nic!

As part of the award rules you must

a) write a random fact about yourself
b) pass the award on
c) notify the bloggers you nominate


a) It’s hard to think of a random fact that I haven’t already told you when I last got an award. Hmmm, shall I tell you a secret instead? I think I’m going to do a make up artist course later in the year 🙂  I’m so excited but won’t get my hopes up until the deposit is paid and I have my childcare in order.

b) I would like to nominate:
liloo and her blog Petit Jardin De Liloo 
Kirsti and her blog Notebook
Kate and her blog All Things Amazing In An Ordinary Girls Life – Kate is new to blogging and is one of my best friends so please show her some love!

Thanks once again Nics, happy Friday followers! x

My First Blog Award

Thank you CheekyBeauty for sending me the Beautiful Blogger Award!

The rules of this award is that I have to write 7 un-known things about myself, and then pass the award onto 5 other bloggers…. so here goes!

Ummmm – this is hard, am having to delve into dark recesses of the brain!

1. When I was born I had a cone head……. (no, seriously!!!) It did go down within a matter of hours, but imagine my poor Mum’s horror!

2. My head has since been glued together – I dropped a TV on it when I was at secondary school. It was a choice of shaving my head and having stitches, or having it glued…. errrr like there was a choice – hello!?

3. At my first week of a new, private secondary school I managed to smash a hot chicken and mushroom pie into a boys face by accident & he got burnt. He told the teachers the pie was on the floor and he was running and tripped up into it, so I wouldn’t get in trouble – bless him! I found him on Facebook recently and he told me it didn’t scar, phew!

4. At the same school I was responsible for making my form teacher crash into my headmistress’ car.

5. I have a credit in Blazin’ Squads album – I was ‘the beanied up receptionist’ dontcha know!

6. When I was 12 I had a french crop. No you’re not seeing a photo of that one! I wanted East 17 shaved into the back but my mum wouldn’t let me, meanie!

7. When I was younger and blonder everyone used to tell me I looked like Cat Deely. I now get Michelle from Big Brother – cheers.

I thought that was going to be hard but it was alright actually!

Ok – and now I’m tagging….
